    Shoulder pain after squatting

    Hi

    I am feeling pain on my right shoulder, rotator cuff and right part of neck. The pain started a day after doing squats. I’ve always had problems with shoulder mobility and could feel tightness in my shoulder when holding the squat bar. I also have bicep tendinitis.Just wanted to find out if I should see a specialist or if it will heal itself

    You have an external rotation issue in the right shoulder, stop doing squats immediately as you are loading that shoulder under pressure combined with external rotation probably impinging your shoulder even more.
    It will not heal by itself and seeing a specialist is a perfectly reasonable procedure if you are not having an excruciating amount of pain you just need to open up that shoulder with stretching and PT exercises.

    Type in youtube - Trevor Bachmayer , he is the most knowledgeable guy I found on shoulder issues. According to your brief description, you probably have a combination of bicep tendonitis and shoulder impingement.

    Follow his procedures consistently about 3-4 times a week and you will get better no questions. Remove barbell squats and try to find a safety squat bar to do squats which is superior movement anyway.

    Tip also , do overhead pressing which might seem counterintuitive but with a perfect form and by shrugging the weight at the top it will help a lot with fixing the rotator cuff pain.
